These were my first shows at Cal Expo. Never missed a show there after. I remember being blown away the how small it was. We walked right up to the front every night. Great memories!
Subject: A Great "Band" show
Subject: Garcia plays the STRAT!!
The Birdsong and Other One are also pretty pure, as is the whole show. Jer and Brent do some nice trading off, Brent had a great night too...Phil is not in biscuit mode, but is very musical and funky...Bob was minimally Bobish, always a treat. The band sounded good and tight and ready to play forever.
Runs like this were rare and exquisite...they still seem like a dream.
'89 was perhaps the best year of the last ten, and this is one of the best shows of '89.
Subject: Please !
Subject: This is Incredible
I remember being backstage after, and Billy saying that he "wished every show was this great"...This is the relaxed perfection of real musicians at work.
Although the recording does not quite do it justice, the content smokes!!!
Subject: Great show, 1/2 great recording
Second set Nak source is a bit of a letdown in sound quality. Needs a severe cut in the low mids to be listenable. Audience is also much louder with the Naks. I would give a 5-star '89 rating if not for the change in sources. Worth hearing even if you weren't at the non-stop party that was Cal Expo.
